The Search for the Perfect
I have an oily and pimple prone skin. I am always on a lookout for the products which can suit my skin type perfectly. I don’t apply foundation except once or twice in a year and that too when I need to use heavy makeup. It is my experience that Foundation, most of the time, clogs our pores and supports in the pimple breakout. So for day to day coverage of uneven skin tone, I needed something which does not cause breakouts and does not make my skin look oily or shiny. After using BB creams from various brands I came across body shop BB cream and I thought of giving it a try. surprisingly it suited me a lot and met most of my desired expectations.

About the product

The product is launched by The Body Shop. It mentions that the product contains fair trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya. This particular product comes in three shades 1,2 and 3. All these comes in a tube with a sturdy lid. You can match the color according to your complexion. YES. It has a faint fragrance of tea tree oil also.
Packaging is travel friendly

Gives a very good coverage along with Matt finish

Quickly absorbs into the skin and blemishes and imperfections are covered instantly

Very small quantity is sufficient

It is not heavy on skin and does not give an artificial white look if used correctly

It gives the same fresh look to the face for at least 5 to 6 hours.

Does not lead to breakouts

Suitable for everyday use


People with dry skin should apply moisturizer before using it

Contains Para-bans

Does not contain sunscreens

My take..
People with oily and pimple prone skin should definitely give it a try.

It does not clog pores and does not make the skin look shiny.

In addition to it it gives a very good coverage for uneven skin tone

Maintains the same fresh feeling for a longer time here

Below is the picture of my friend’s hand where I have applied 01 BB cream on half part of her hand. This was done to test the cream. As you can clearly see the good coverage and the smooth look after applying this BB cream.
